Spotters at Adria Raceway in Italy yesterday were greeted with an awesome scene. There was a small team of Ferrari engineers and test drivers in one of the paddocks, and they had brought with them a LaFerrari XX prototype for a couple of test runs around the track.
Naturally, the car was pictured inside and out so we can have an unusually close look at Ferrari’s most secret current project. The XX, as you may know, is a track version of the road-going LaFerrari and the successor to the Enzo FXX. This car will join the company’s prestigious Corse Clienti program; a high-end track day program for the firm’s most social customers, and something that McLaren recently ripped off for their P1 GTR Driver Program.
Here’s LaFerrari XX at Paul Ricard circuit:
That sound you are hearing is generated by a beefed-up version of the same V12 hybrid they use in the normal Ferrari LaFerrari. In the XX version the system is expected to make close to 1,050 horsepower (standard car has 960), which combined with racing suspension, brakes, and tires, plus super clever aerodynamics, will make the LaXX a formidable track weapon. They will only make a handful of these though, and prices are going to be pretty high – over $2 million apiece. LaFerrari XX will be unveiled in December at the Finali Mondiali Ferrari event in Abu Dhabi.
